The power went out at about 10:20 just as I was falling to sleep. I couldn't sleep because my servers were on UPS and the beeping was doing nothing but keeping me worried. The UPS went critical at around the 1 hour mark and I shut off the web server and firewall to keep the mail server running, because I'd rather not have to boot that beast again. About 10 minutes later the power came on and I spent the next 20 getting the systems online again. Now I'm writing this post.

Now I sleep. :P
